Book Description

April 15, 1990 0231071337 978-0231071338 3rd

Naphtali Lewis and Meyer Reinhold's Roman Civilization is a classic. Originally published by Columbia University Press in 1955, the authors have undertaken another revision which takes into account recent work in the field. These volumes consist of selected primary documents from ancient Rome, covering a range f over 1,000 years of Roman culture, from the foundation of the city to its sacking by the Goths.

The selections cover a broad spectrum of Roman civilization, including literature, philosophy, religion, education, politics, military affairs, and economics. These English translations of literary, inscriptional, and papyrological sources, many of which are available nowhere else, create a mosaic of the brilliance, the beauty, and the power of Rome.

This book puts life and context into the readings regarding ancient Roman civilisation, and is rare in that it illustrates the lives of women as well as other themes. A great source book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb collection of original evidence March 21, 2013
Format:Paperback
I have used this excellent book for teaching twice. It is wonderful. (I paired it with Ward's History of the Roman People, but I may try using it with Nagle's Ancient Rome: A History which has just come out and is quite intriguing.) Anyway, this book is full of a huge amount of very well-selected primary sources. It is eminently usable, well-organized, and well-chosen. My students love it. With it, one can read the actual words (translated into English) of the ancient Romans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liber Perexcellens May 8, 2000
Format:Paperback
Although I was required to purchase and use this book for my Roman History course, I found it to be absolutely amazing in quality and detailed and compelling in content.
No enthusiast of Classical civilization, amature or professional, should be without this book.
